With all the stresses of modern life, it is not only advanced age that causes a decline in male sexual performance. While age certainly is a factor, anxiety and physical health conditions can also be to blame and, judging from the amount of media attention this subject is receiving, the problem seems far more prevalent than ever. Obviously, most men will do whatever they can to regain their youthful vigor and sexual energy, one of the major reasons there are so many male performance products now available on the market. For men who suffer from extreme sexual decline, it is wise to seek professional medical advice but for many the condition may be helped by supplementing his diet with naturally-sourced beneficial nutrients.
Before starting to look at all the various options available, it is important for the consumer to understand exactly how the erection process takes place and which are the essential ingredients to help address any problems. For any good supplement to work well, it must contain substances that support overall blood flow to the penile area. The penis is comprised of three main chambers which consist of sponge-like tissues. During an erection, these chambers – the Corpora Cavernosa along the penis shaft and the Corpus Spongiosum that runs down the urethra – are filled with blood that rushes to the area during sexual arousement. The fuller the chambers, the firmer and stiffer the penis will become and the longer the erection can be sustained. This, of course, is likely to result in sexual pleasure for both partners.
But what ingredients should be in a good male performance supplement and how does a consumer know which are proven to work? While many performance formulas are natural, not all contain clinically tested ingredients and for this reason, many consumers end up spending a lot of money on products that ultimately just don’t work.
However, there are certain ingredients, including the following, that have been tested, both in scientific and consumer studies. Prosexual nutrients: these are found in all reputable male performance products and consist of certain amino acids that may decline as the male ages. Maca Powder: this substance is often labelled a ‘superfood’ and is a very popular ingredient regularly used to support a healthy libido. Herba Rowdy Weed: this is an ancient ingredient that has been used by men for centuries as a way to deal with age-related sexual issues. Caltrop: another very popular substance, Caltrop is linked to male hormonal levels and benefits from being combined with with Prosexual Nutrients. Zinc: although this can be found naturally in certain foods, some men require additional amounts in their diet. Rhizoma Cucurmae Longae: this can be used as a way to support the aging male libido. Eurycoma Longifolia: a natural tonic for decreased sexual function due to the aging process. Tongkat Ali: another ingredient that men have used for centuries as a way to support sexual activity. Saw Palmetto: not strictly an ingredient that benefits the erection, Saw Palmetto is often added to men’s supplements for its link to prostate health*. Astragalus Membranaceus: used to support overall health levels and affect vitality and well-being. Herba Cistanches: found specifically in Chinese sexual tonics.
